Israel's Defense Potentials Strengthened;
Cease Fire Continuation Strongly Favored

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Israeli
political and military leaders
stressed Wednesday that the
armed forces are better able to
withstand a new Egyptian on-
slaught in the Suez Canal zone
than they were three months ago,
despite the heavy concentration
of Soviet missiles in the area. As-
sessments of the military position
were made by acting Premier Yi-
gal Allon and Chief of Staff Gen.
Hahn Bar-Lev as the expiration
deadline for the 90-day cease fire
was less than 48 hours away.
Alton said Tuesday night that
it was no secret that Israel "has
not been resting on Its laurels" in
the canal zone during the past
three months and is now stronger
than she was before the cease
fire. His remarks, at a farewell
dinner for 300 members of a Uni-
ted Jewish Appeal study mission,
were seen as a blunt warning to
the Egyptians that they would do
well to continue the cease fire.
Allon said that Israel was pre-
pared to observe a cease fire in-
definitely as long as the Egyp-
tians did. "You don't have to be
a prophet to know that Israel is
prepared for any contingency,"
Allon said. He said Israel was not
looking for new victories but was
striving for peace and was will-
ing to renew the Jarring talks
if the Egyptians "honor their ob-
ligations." At the same time, he
said, "we are prepared to defend
ourselves if war is inevitable."
Gen. Bar-Lev said that Israel
took all possible measures to be
ready for a resumption of fight-

Bar-Ban Opens

RAMAT GAN, Israel—Bar-Ilan
University opened its 16th aca-
demic year last week with an en-
rollment of 5,500 students, 700
more than last year, with 800 stu-
dents from abroad and 500 stu-
dents residing in university dormi-
This new school year marks the
opening of the faculty of law with
45 students registered. Also new
this year is the department of
musicology which will award a
BA degree.
The law school is beaded by
Dean Arnold Enker, former profes-
sor of law at the University of
Minnesota. Dr. Enker also served
as an adviser of President John-
son's Commission on Criminal Af-
fairs and as a senior legal adviser
to the Israel ministry of Justice.
Other American members of
the law school include Prof. Nor-
man Abrams of the University of
California and former head of the'‘
Institute for Research of Israeli
Law in the law faculty of Har-
vard University; Prof. Aaron
Schreiber of the University of
Maryland; and Prof. Herbert
Schreiber of Rutgers University.

They are among a group of 25
Americans who are joining the
university's faculties this year.
Many new courses in computer
science are offered which make
use of the university's recently
acquired IBM 360/50 computer.
Close to 1,000 students will use the
computer in the various depart-

ments for research and admin-
istrative purposes, etc.
The university has adopted the
trimester system which will ena-
ble the students to complete their
studies in less time. Also the stu-
dents will have the opportunity to
shorten their study period by tak-
ing summer courses which will be
offered permanently in many of

the university's departments.

ing when the 90-day cease fire
expires. He warned the Egyptians
that if they decided not to con-
tinue the truce "they will find
themselves in a very awkward
position." Bar-Lev disclosed that
Israeli fortifications along the
canal have been strengthened to
withstand the heaviest bombard-
ment, including the massive shells
of the Soviet 203 mm artillery
which, according to Israeli intelli-
gence, has been supplied to Egypt
in large quantities. Bar-Lev said
that during the three month truce
new roads were completed and
water and fuel supply systems
were improved to bolster Israeli
forces in the event the Egyptians
open a new round of warfare.
Defense ministry sources indi-
cated that Israel has the capacity
of destroying all of the Soviet
missiles set up in the truce zone
since the cease fire, though they
admitted that it would probably
cost Israel heavy casualties. They
disclosed that huge sums of money
have been poured into the logis-
tics complex to the rear of Israel's
Suez line. "The rear can support
any action which might become
necessary after the cease fire," a
ministry spokesman said. The de-
fense ministry disclosed that wa-
ter pipelines have been laid across
the Sinai so that the army's trans-
necessary for trucks to haul wa-
ter to the front.
Workshops and maintenance
facilities have been established in
the Sinai so that the army's trans-
portation facilities are no longer
dependent on their home bases.
Police Minister Shlomo Hillel
said In the Knesset Tuesday night
that be believed Israel would be
willing to give up most of the oc-

cupied Arab territories in return
for a genuine peace settlement.
He spoke in reply to a question
from Slimuel Tamir of the Free
Center faction, who asked him to
confirm statements attributed to
him in an interview published
in the French magazine, Nouvelle
Hillel said the last Knesset
election indicated that the public
rejected extremist views. A ma-
jority of Israelis believe that if
there was a true peace aettle-
meat with the Arabs, Israel
should adopt a "generous ap-
proach as far as the borders are
concerned," he said. He felt the
nature of the peace was more im-
portant than the frontiers, he
cautioned, however, that Israel
would not return territories and
expose itself to danger
. in ex-
change for "palliatives.'
